Playing Catch-up: Bonsai Rock

April 29, 2010 | Category: Photography

I can’t believe how back logged I am on editing/posting photos. Here’s an oldie that I’ve been meaning to put up since mid winter.

Bonsai Rock Panorama

I wouldn’t consider myself a landscape photographer,  I don’t have a pano head and the sky wasn’t very spectacular, but I’m fairly happy with the result. The location is Bonsai rock at Lake Tahoe. Being one of my favorite summer swimming spots, I’ve always wanted to do a winter sunset/sunrise shoot there. I plan on going back soon to try again. I like the polarizing effect interesting in this photo (clear foreground water).


Nikon D3, Nikon 17-35mm 2.8, Rodenstock C-PL filter. The panorama consists of 6 vertical frames.

    awesome idea for the filter. Maybe you should think about doing more nature/pano shots! Another great shot man.

    Great shot, Daniel!
    How long did you expose?
    Must have been several seconds per frame and if so, how did you manage the clouds?
